1-1

As a outstanding obd2 options,CAT Caterpillar ET Diagnostic Adapter attributes a potent function.it not just can Show

“Logged Occasion Codes” to show engine greater than speeds,Greater temperatures, fuel consumption but additionally can

view ECM? current configuration and adjust user settings,carry out diagnostic tests and calibrations, and

calibrate.Electro-mechanical and electro-hydraulic elements .

Is definitely the Auto Scanner Tools Cat Comm III compatable applying the computer computer software CAT Caterpillar ET
2018A Is this an actual caterpillar portion or even a knock off? Thanks.Yes, this really is definitely the genuine CAT

adapter, It really is also the ONLY advisable adapter for CAT ET, but clearly other ones will carry out. It is going to

function fine for the version you could have, and 2018A is really the newest version.

What specifically is definitely the distinction in between a cat comm II & Cat Comm III. Is one just a usb connection

and one serial? Also, will this unit execute with my Cat 3126B marine units? Seriel no. 3GS01797 Thanks. CAT Comm II was

a serial port model, but since computers are no longer made with serial ports, they changed the design to a USB and

called it a CAT Comm III. So you are correct. This unit works with all CAT engines – Marine, on-highway, and off-

highway. On Marine units,  not sure where they put the plug, but it should be somewhere near the ECM (Typically). It

should be either a 6 pin or 9 pin connector.

Does this operate with CAT 3500 natural gas engines and 3600 natural gas engines? Thanks.If those Professional

Diagnostic Tools use CAT Electronic Technician (CAT ET) for the application, it is going to perform. Can the cat

communicate 3 also be used to read detroit and cummins engines if I have the correct software? Yes, it reads both J1708

and J1939 so it can read both of those. Keep in mind that this adapter only comes with the J1939 adapter end, so I would

recommend purchasing the J1708 adapter end from me as well if you plan on connecting to some older stuff.
